Very Critical Bassist Loves This Bass

(5.0)
Ezra Poo on June 13, 2014
Funk Rock Classic Rock Pop Rock Heavy Metal Country

I've given this bass five stars across the board because this JB is so well made and sounds so good. It's such a versatile instrument. With a bit of EQ-ing, It's got thump and growl and everything in between. I own a Ric, a Hofner, and the Jazz Bass, but for the cover band I'm in, the JB performs so well--lots of power in those single coil pickups. It can't do what the Hofner or Ric can do, but the JB covers a lot of ground for the many genres my band plays.

A classic Fender Jazz for left handers

(4.0)
pineweasel on October 19, 2013
Amateur Blues R&B Funk Jazz Alternative Rock Classic Rock Pop Rock Heavy Metal Reggae / Ska Punk

This is a high quality Jazz, with a beautiful deep sunburst finish, superb neck, and great pickups and hardware. It has all the classic Jazz tones and is a pleasure to play. I like the combination of vintage looks and sounds with modern features such as the high mass bridge, lightweight tuners and graphite reinforcement - I can't find any dead spots on the neck, unlike some older Fenders I've owned.

My one complaint with this instrument: although Fender reverse the wiring so that the knobs rotate in the opposite direction for lefties, they retain the regular audio pots. This results in a useless tone control that has no effect for 95% of its travel, then shuts off all the high frequencies like a switch, and also produces somewhat odd volume control behaviour. At this price level I'm disappointed, as left handed pots are easy to obtain.

Also, I'd like to see a maple fingerboard offered as an option, as it is for the right handed basses. I note that the lefty Stratocasters come with rosewood or maple, so it can't be impossible, can it?

Left-Handed Perfection!

(5.0)
linnin on May 9, 2013
Semi-Professional Blues R&B Jazz Rock Classic Rock Pop Rock

My first left-handed Fender was a 1976 Precision that I ordered new and still own. I love what Fender has done to their modern jazz basses. They're just perfect. The 3 tone sunburst finish is masterfully applied and is a work of art in and of itself. I love the modern 9 1/2" neck radius. It's very comfortable and super playable. The High Mass bridge is an excellent design well executed. True tonal greatness resides in the Custom Shop pickups. I've heard a lot of pickups in my lifetime, and these are just killer. I can't rave about them enough. The overall craftsmanship is world class all the way. I'll be keeping this bass the rest of my life.
